. >> "america live" starts now. >> megyn: fireworks, partisan politics and class warfare, and president obama tries to pressure them into a deal that would prevent the automatic spending cuts the president backed from hitting next week. welcome to "america live" i'm megyn kelly. here is president obama earlier today at the white house surrounded as he is prone to do, likes to surround himself with the special interest groups if he didn't get what he's pushing for. and in this case, it's first responders. he directly called out republicans, suggesting they, and keep thinking that this is something the sequester deal that bob woodward reported came from the president. in any event he agreed to it and so do the republicans and now the president is saying the republicans are the ones putting american job security and even lives at risk. >> emergency responders, like the ones who are here today, their ability to help communities respond to and recover from disasters, will be degraded. border patrol agents will see their hours reduced. fbi agents will be furloughed. federal prosecutors will have to
news alert. we are just seeing president obama's arrival in minnesota at this hour. where he will try to rally support for gun control. welcome to "america live." i'm shannon bream in today for megyn kelly. the president is expected to make public remarks on meetings about gun violence while back at the white house his team is taking new questions about the decision to release this photo showing the president shooting skeets at camp david. fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on foxnews.com. all right, chris, your take on the timing of the release of this particular picture. >> well, obviously the president wants people to know that he is okay with guns and has touched them, has shot them and is fine with all of that. because what is happening now is that the anxieties among gun owners and among second amendment enthusiasts for what they think is going to be a broad gun control effort by the president and certainly that's what we're seeing cooking up in the u.s. senate. for these folks, they say he is out of touch. he doesn't understand. this is the president saying
of young democrats. to hear this man talk was really astounding. i am quite critical of the obama administration in terms of things i have done. in terms of hagel's nomination, i am very impressed. his views on foreign-policy almost seemed to dip -- too far beyond this era. my only feel is that the political parties will bring this ideology down simply because a lot of people are not prepared for it. thank you and have a good day. guest: i think -- i would beg to differ about the too far beyond this era. i had the privilege of working for former secretary of state george schultz. in my estimation, senator hagel's views are consistent with secretary schultz, whom i think is one of the giants of our time. i think they have the same sort of outlook of trying to be pragmatic and take a look at things from multiple dimensions and informed judgments based on the conditions of the time. i think we have had many people of this particular persuasion. we have been fortunate in our country to have many leaders like senator hagel. i share your hope that we continue to have them going forward.

hamp, or sometimes they say the obama plan. they will say i am an expert. or they may say they are affiliated with the program. they take people's money and a skip town. what we do is we kept them, we put handcuffs on them, and we put them in jail and make them stand trial and a for their crimes. these people are being convicted and going to jail. this is an unscrupulous, to have a crime that is targeting people who are struggling during this financial crisis. we get calls related to those. we are trying to educate homeowners about that so they did not become victims in the first place. but a lot of people will lose their homes of the situation. host: christy romero, special inspector general for tarp. the question about the teeth -- question of to this executive pay, if treasury signed off on it, what can sigtarp really do? guest: we make recommendations to treasury and a half to be dealt with. we also report to congress. we send these reports to congress and congress helps put teeth in it. but a ultimately we have a lot of recommendations that are not implemented and the
to get a sense on how significant a dent that could put in the relationship if president obama says no to the keystone. >> i think it depends on how it is managed between the two leaders. this is a case in which the prime minister believes this is an important issue for canada. it was understandable in the context of the run-up to the presidential election campaign the last time that he was saying no and there were other issues that were more of a local nature as well at the site, it could be accepted as something that was more in the nature of the delay and a flat-out refusal. i think it will be meaningful. it will be important how it is explained if the answer is no. what is the justification? what is the reality that is perceived to come out of it? if their reasons are door that you describe them, i will be found -- that will be found unacceptable and that would be a problem. >> in talking to canadian politicians, there are some things out of joint. a lot of it has to do with the suggestion that if canada were to do more on the climate change front, this might help us. canadian p
could be achieved in the new obama administration, the second term you about it is ultimately the supreme leader who calls the shots. certainly the fact that iran told the u.n. nuclear watchdog last week it was going to be deploying a significant number of second generation centrifuges that can spin uranium three times as fast as ones currently used is not a sign of stepping back, jenna. it is certainly a sign of moving quickly along. there are some experts who think that actually more rigorous, intensive, sustained negotiations at this point will be more useful than sanctions. then there are different opinions at this point about this point of no return. some say it his iran has enough fissile materiel it could make a nuclear warhead. and that would be this summer by many estimates. others are saying that red line point is when iran can do that but do it in a way that is undetected by world powers so they won't really have an opportunity to respond in time. and some experts are frankly saying iran is already at this point is a nuclear power because it frankly does have the kn

in 2004 and by the way have you changed any of your views since the election of barack obama? >> guest: i remember my mother when he was nominated, hazel and khalia and i were in montrÉal. she called me at the hotel. she was i think 93 then. she said, and she was crying. [inaudible] i didn't need that telling. i always knew this. america is many places. it is a place that can be tolerant and accepting, a place where views can be moderated and differences can be reconciled. and i think a good deal of america supported vigorously the candidacy of a rock obama. and it's not only important to the black community. it's important to other americans as well. but he still faces a sort of vicious kind of ridicule from certain borders that are not unlike the america we saw when i was young in richmond, virginia. but, i think there are several americans -- i had grown tired of at least one of them. >> host: and "quitting america" you wrote america never helps anyone, even the starving and list its proposed to an american interest either strategic or economic and one cannot always distinguish one fr

looks like. and this year, as noted, voters returned barack hussain obama to the white house who has not only demonstrated with his actions that he is that most algy bt's supported president history of our country, but with his inclusion of the 1969 stonewall rebellion in his inaugural speech he squarely placed lgb t equality in the long lineage of movement that has had watershed moments from seneca falls to selma. and we will work to get him to say more than just. as i sat at the front of the capitol honored to attend the inauguration holding my daughter's hand, listening to the president, watching that fears bettina sonya sotomayor swearing in the vice-president hearing a more inclusive benediction, being transported by the poetry of richard bagram, a gay cuban immigrant, and, of course, the invitation by civil rights leader, well, let's just say i thought, yes, yes, this is the country are no, this is a country i want my daughter to grow up in. what happened on the steps of the capitol earlier this week was in so many ways remarkable. real change, but it was also made inevitable b
